Sketch Variations 2

How you index sort a set of start points for a sketch can dramatically effect how it looks when you connect the points in sequence. Trying out some different variations available in the path start control panel of the paint synthesizer.

TSP Sketch Experiments

Playing around with TSP (traveling salesman problem) optimized sorting for building sketch effects in the paint synthesizer.
Another TSP sketch variation.

Call to Arms

Experimenting with auto-randomized temporal image operations used to create stack filtering effects from a folder of images.

Tuesday, March 24, 2015


Another gallery show source image build up experiment, again with self mutating vectorizer effects. So the source images are mutating and the canvas image build sup over several gallery show cycles.

Monday, March 23, 2015


Generative source image buildup along with randomized vectorizer effects grabbed during a gallery show run. The source image builds up over several gallery show cycles with this approach.

Facing Forward

More experiments with randomized dynamic paint presets and auto-masked generative source image buildup.

Virtual Head Explosion

Since it was derived from continuously mutated head shots recombined with a start cycle gallery show algorithm, then randomly painted in with a mutating paint synthesizer technique.

Faceless Face

Faceless painted image of an ever changing generative face. Source image is being mutated and re-combined with other randomly selected images over time as the gallery show cycles progress.

Thursday, March 19, 2015


Generative process running in gallery show. Working with a folder of randomly selected new paint presets, along with a start cycle process that auto-modifies the source image randomly over time.

Auto-mutated dynamic brush paint synthesizer effect.

The Fly

More generative gallery show experimentation using adaptive source and effect processing simultaneously within the successive gallery show processing cycles.

The Thinker

I'm using a custom PASeq during start cycle processing in a generative gallery show process to manipulate randomized source imagery using adaptive thresholding and associated adaptive auto-masking at the same time i auto-mutate the actual processing.

Saturday, March 14, 2015


More experiments with generative gallery show processes that simultaneously re-combine different random source images as well as auto-mutate vectorizer presets on the fly to build up imagery over several cycles.

Friday, March 13, 2015


Political, psychic, or perhaps just explosive? I'm referring to 'implosion' when i ask that question. Another experiment with generative processing that occurs over several different cycles, buildup a continuously modifying source image as well as auto-mutated processing applied to that ever changing source material.

My Symmetry Crutch

Yes, symmetry could be considered an easy crutch to fall back on. But it is effective. Modification of yesterday's post to jazz it up.

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Spattered Wall

More experiments with generative modification of multiple source images while simultaneously mutating effects presets over  several processing cycles.

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Dangerous View

Combo of paint synthesizer and some vectorizer outline technique built up over several cycles with an ever shifting source image as the build up cycles progress. Again, trying to break free of the curse of the static source image.

Losing Representation

Experimenting with some new ideas for procedurally abstracting the Studio Artist source image, which is used as a 'source' for painting or other effects. So by incorporating a generative process that modifies the source as well as generates effects based on it, you are creating new abstracted anchoring structure for a visual image as well as a new effect that work off of that anchoring structure. I'm still working through automatic ways to do this, so this was my first attempt at a particular approach yesterday.

Death March

Gallery show semi-autonomously interpreting current events through the filter of it's self-mutating generative effect build up process.

Grabbed this primitive abstraction during some gallery show testing.

Unarmed Civilian

Another gallery show cycle overlap buildup experiment. This kind of thing can get sloppy or chaotic due to the random nature of the whole process. But sometimes interesting things pop out. Like most autonomous randomizing generative processes, you need to pick through a lot of questionable images to find interesting one. You can use an image stream to save the entire automatic gallery show run, and then wade through the image folder after it's finished processing.

Monday, February 16, 2015


More gallery show experiments using adaptive source masking in conjunction with repeated cycles of auto-randomized vectorizer effects.
